S’East Governors To IPOB, MASSOB: Give Us Six Months To Negotiate With FG |The Republican News

South-East Governors Forum

By Bolaji Ogundele, Abuja

South East Governors have appealed to agitators for self-determination in the region to halt hostilities and allow them negotiate solutions to age-long grievances with the Federal Government within six months.

Chairman of the Southeast Governors’ Forum, Dave Umahi, who demanded for understanding and time from the agitators, also said only those who want the current state of insecurity and killings to persist would oppose the recent ban on open grazing by governors of southern states.

Ebonyi Governor Umahi spoke on Thursday while featuring on the regular Ministerial Press Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Presidential villa, Abuja.

The Southeast has for years been a hotbed of separatist activities with the Movement for the Actualisation of Biafra (MASOB) and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leading the charge against the Federal Government.

The Governor noted past governments failed to properly deal with the issue of marginalisation, giving rise to MASSOB and IPOB).

He said: “I have offered along with governors to our youths, present your demands in prints and hand over to us.

“There’s no region in this country today that you know does not have one thing or the other against the federal government, but we cannot sit down to discuss and that’s what you have demanded from our youths whether banned or unbanned in so far as you are from southeast.

“Let us see your demands, let us see your grievances and give us six months to engage the federal government to address all these because I believe in dialogue.

“I believe that we can sit down as a people to discuss and find our differences, and we can learn from our differences and also we can together discuss how we can strengthen our operation as a people.”

Describing IPOB as “a child of necessity,” Umahi said: “Now, the ESN is also a product of IPOB.

“You can see how this has multiplied but the point remains that from the onset of matter, the past governments did not address the matter properly because when your children cry for any reason, you have to find out what is the problem, what are the reasons and you fix it.

“I think those people were so badly ignored and that should not have been. And so, what is happening today with regards to IPOB in the Southeast is not a product of this government per se, but it is a product of national governments that didn’t address the matters from the ontset.”

Biafran protesters

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have ordered her members to sit-at-home on May 30.

According to IPOB, its members in over 100 countries, including Lagos, Abuja as well as northern towns with reasonable population are to also observe the sit -at -home.

The pro -Biafra groups said the annual event in commemoration of its fallen heroes and heroines, would be observed in all markets, churches, banks, parks, airports and seaports within and outside the region.

These were contained in separate statements by IPOB and MASSOB by the Media and Publicity Secretary,Emma Powerful and Comrade Samuel Edeson, National Director of Information, respectively in Awka

The pro-Biafran groups said there would be no procession, protest or church services anywhere in the zone, urging members to stay indoors throughout the day.

IPOB said: “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our prophet and liberator of our time, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to the public and Biafrans both home and abroad, that the annual anniversary of our fallen heroes and heroines will be on Sunday, 30th of May 2021.

“As usual, there will be total lock down of the entire Biafra land on that day. There will be sit-at- home across Biafraland, Lagos, Abuja as well as northern towns with reasonable Biafran population.

The sit-at-home order is also to be observed in all the markets within and outside Biafra land where our people do their businesses. It shall also be observed by Diasporan Biafrans in the over 100 countries with the IPOB family is present.

“We equally request our fellow comrades in Yoruba, Middle Belt and other Christians living in the far North to solidarise with us in the event as we honour all those who have paid the supreme price in our struggle for total freedom.

“All Biafrans living overseas must hold rallies in their respective countries of abode in honour of our fallen heroes and heroines including the gallant Imo State Eastern Security Network, ESN, COMMANDER, Ikonso and his men murdered last week by the Nigeria security agents.

“The rallies will also show the outside world of our resolve and preparedness to leave Nigeria. We equally advise our Diasporan people to ensure they get the written approval of their host countries before embarking on the rallies.

“Consequently, there will be no movement on the roads throughout Biafraland; no banking or financial services in our territory; no commercial activities of any kind.

“There will be no procession or protest anywhere in Biafra land on that day. Everyone is to stay indoors, no church service on that fateful day” IPOB said

MASSOB said:”After our National meeting at MASSOB headquarters at Enugu, we have declared May 30th as Biafra day celebration.

“We can never change the ordinances of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the leader of Biafra nation. Ojukwu declared the Republic of Biafra with the total consent and full support of the elders and the people of Biafra on May 30th, 1967.
“MASSOB has no intention or plan to observe our fatherland anniversary celebration on any other date except on May 30th because May 30th is sacrosanct and sacred to the history and lives of Biafra Republic.

“The ordinances of our great leader, General Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu must be jealousy and eloquently adhered to, any attempt to change it by disgruntled persons will be strictly resisted.

“MASSOB, directs the people of Biafra to observe a special prayers and supplication for the fallen Biafra heroes during the Nigeria –Biafra war and our comrades that were killed by Nigeria security agents including the people of Biafra that died in the hands of Islamic Boko Haram and Fulani terrorist herdsmen.

“MASSOB directs all markets, schools, banks and all other public offices in Biafra land to observe the sit- at -home exercise as a mark of respect for our fatherland

“In spirit of brotherhood and Biafranism, MASSOB will collaborate with other Pro -Biafran groups that have unanimously agreed and resolved to jointly observe, commemorate and celebrate the 54 years anniversary of Biafra declaration by our foremost leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu on 30th May, 2021.

“This year’s anniversary will be celebrated by the people of Biafra not as a pro Biafra group, it is a mark of respect and honour to our father land, it is also a reminder to the visions and commandments of our great ancestors that we are not Nigerians but Biafrans.

“We enjoin our people to get ready for the celebration of this great anniversary which will hold to remind ourselves to continue the self determination movement for Biafra actualization and restoration.”

We Provide Protection To Those Who Need It, UK Responds To FG On Asylum For IPOB/MASSOB |The Republican News

BY BRIDGET EDOKWE

The United Kingdom has defended its decision to consider granting asylum to members of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

According to PUNCH, the British high commission in Nigeria said the UK provides protection to those who need it, in response to the federal government’s criticism of the move.

TheCable had published an exclusive report that the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) had released new guidelines on how to treat asylum applications by members of Biafran secessionist groups.

In the guidelines, asylum is to be granted to “persecuted” members of MASSOB and IPOB, which had been designated as a terrorist organisation in Nigeria.

But Lai Mohammed, minister of information, had kicked against the move which he said amounts to sabotaging Nigeria’s fight against terrorism.

“Against the background of the fact that IPOB is not only proscribed but also designated as a terrorist organisation here in Nigeria, the UK’s decision is disrespectful of Nigeria as a nation,” Mohammed had also said.

In its response to the minister’s comments, the British High Commission said it considers asylum to Nigerians seeking one “on their individual merits in accordance with our international obligations.”

“The UK has a proud history of providing protection to those who need it, in accordance with our international obligations under the Refugee Convention and European Convention on Human Rights,” PUNCH quoted the high commission to have said.

“Our country policy and information notes are published on the gov.uk website. They are kept under constant review and updated periodically – an update to the Biafra separatist note is expected shortly.

“We publish them since our decisions can be appealed in the immigration courts, which are public, so it is clearer and fairer for all involved (applicants, their lawyers, judges, stakeholders such as the UNHCR) to know what our position and evidence base is.”

Meanwhile, IPOB had said it wants a referendum on self-determination for the Biafran area of Nigeria not asylum.

UK Gov’t Report On IPOB/ESN, MASSOB, Buhari’s Gov’t And Biafran Agitation |The Republican News

In March 2021, the British Government released on its official Home Office website, a 56 page report in which it shared its thoughts on the Biafran agitation.

The report talked about IPOB, MASSOB, ESN, Nnamdi Kanu, Buhari and his administration. The report also offered Asylum to IPOB and MASSOB members. Excerpts of the report are below

On IPOB being declared a terrorist group: While MASSOB appears not to be banned, IPOB has been proscribed as a terrorist organisation.

However, both groups have generally acted peacefully in advocating for an independent ‘Biafra’ and been the victims of state violence.

The groups have also used inflammatory rhetoric, including comments in support of violence, and clashed violently with the authorities during demonstrations and protests, resulting in deaths of security force members and damage to property

ESN: In December 2020, IPOB is
reported to have set up the Eastern Security Network (ESN), a militia to counter the rising insecurity in the region. In February 2021, Facebook locked Kanu’s account for violating its rules on harm and hate speech.

The security forces have also alleged that IPOB members have on occasion targeted and killed police officers. Reports of casualties vary, but in October
2020 at least three police officers and six army officers were killed in clashes with IPOB.

It is not clear from the sources consulted whether supporters or members who have been arrested have since been prosecuted or convicted for treason or other offences. Nor do sources provide specific information about the length of or treatment of members or supporters of Biafran groups in detention.

In February 2021 the Nigerian military
launched land and air operations against operatives of the ESN, a militia/vigilante group originally set up to protect the south-eastern region, which IPOB claims marked the beginning of the second Nigeria/Biafra war

MASSOB: MASSOB, since its formation in the late 1990s, has clashed with the security forces. Numerous members have been killed, wounded and arrested –usually during demonstrations.

Over a hundred arrests were made in September 2018, at least 10 in 2019; and, in July 2020, it was reported that
members of MASSOB were arrested following clashes with police. IPOB grew out of MASSOB between 2012 and 2014 and reportedly has a presence outside of Nigeria, including the UK.

There are also reported to be a number of minor Biafran groups but these do not seem to have a significant presence in the country. In recent years, MASSOB has become divided, splitting into several smaller groups and is less active than IPOB.

Both MASSOB and IPOB have largely advocated for peaceful change but on occasions have used rhetoric that may encourage violent resistance.

IPOB in particular, through its online platform, Radio Biafra, and online comments of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has stoked secessionist aspirations and encouraged resistance to the authorities.

Oyigbo(Obigbo): Further clashes and violence occurred between security forces and IPOB in August 2020 in the city of Enugu when police stormed an IPOB meeting and also in October 2020 during confrontations in Rivers State.

These incidents resulted in the arrests and deaths of IPOB supporters as well security force personnel, although there seem to be contradictory reporting on the exact figures.

In November 2020 there were reports that security forces were carrying out revenge killings following the October attacks in the Rivers State area of Oyigbo, these reports were denied by state Governor Nyesom Wike.

Following an attack by IPOB members in Rivers State in October 2020, the governor offered a reward for information that could lead to the arrest and prosecution of the IPOB state leader Stanley Mgbere.

CPIT could find no further information in the sources consulted that Mr Mgbere had been located and arrested

Nnamdi Kanu: The IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu reportedly resides in the UK. He is the director of London-based Radio Biafra, an online radio station set up to broadcast the demands of secessionists. Programmes are transmitted daily in English and Igbo.

He had been recruited by MASSOB leader Uwazuruike to run
Radio Biafra in London.

The pair fell out and Kanu later re-emerged as IPOB leader. BBC monitoring also stated:‘The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu says he is ready to face trials and defend Biafrans at the International Criminal Court
(ICC), against “genocidal” attacks by “killer herdsmen and bandits”. Speaking on a live broadcast on Radio Biafra, he says: “Herdsmen will attack us, rape our women, destroy our farms and kill our farmers nobody
will arrest them but when we try to defend ourselves, the government will come after us rolling out the tanks and using their helicopter gunboats.

If defending our ancestral land against conquest by Fulani supporter of APC invaders will take me to The Hague, I am ready to go to The Hague.

Another major clash between the armed forces and the pro-Biafra activists occurred in October 2015 when the IPOB-leader Kanu was arrested on charges of treason and ethnic incitement.

A wave of street protests and arrests followed. Kanu was released on 25 April 2017. However, on 22 September 2017, soldiers attacked the house where Kanu was staying and killed 28 people in the surroundings. The government denied the claim.

Asylum To IPOB/MASSOB Members: UK Disrespectful, Sabotaging War Against Terrorism —Lai Mohammed |RN

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed

The Federal Government says the reported decision of the United Kingdom to grant asylum to “persecuted” members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is disrespectful of Nigeria as a nation.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, also said that the decision amounted to sabotaging the fight against terrorism and generally undermining Nigeria’s security.
Fielding questions from Newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, Mohammed said the decision is unacceptable to Nigeria.
“Let me say straight away that this issue is within the purview of the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs and I am sure he will handle it appropriately.
“But as the spokesman for the Federal Government of Nigeria, I will say that if indeed the report that the UK will grant asylum to supposedly persecuted IPOB and MASSOB members is true, then something is wrong somewhere.
“Against the background of the fact that IPOB is not only proscribed but also designated as a terrorist organisation here in Nigeria, the UK’s decision is disrespectful of Nigeria as a nation.
“The decision amounts to sabotaging the fight against terrorism and generally undermining Nigeria’s security.
“It is not only unconscionable, but it is also inexplicable,’’ he said.
The minister said that there had recently been heightened attacks against security agencies in the South East Zone.
He said IPOB had been fingered as being behind the attacks in spite of its denials.
“For the UK to choose this time to give succour to IPOB beggars belief and calls to question the UK’s real intention.

“If we could go down the memory lane, what the UK has done is like Nigeria offering asylum to members of the IRA before the 1998 Good Friday Peace Agreement,’’ he said.
NAN reports that the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) had released new guidelines to its decision-makers on how to consider and grant asylum applications by members of Biafran secessionist groups.
In the guidelines, asylum is to be granted to “persecuted” members IPOB, a group that Nigeria had designated as a terrorist organisation.

JUST IN: UK To Grant Asylum To IPOB/MASSOB Members |The Republican News

Biafrans members

BY BRIDGET EDOKWE

The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) has released new guidelines to its decision makers on how to consider and grant asylum applications by members of Biafran secessionist groups, TheCable can report.

Asylum is to be granted to “persecuted” members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which has been designated as a terrorist organisation by the Nigerian government, and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

IPOB was formed in 2012 by Nnamdi Kanu and is believed to be an offshoot of MASSOB, which was founded in 1999 by Ralph Uwazuruike.

Both are campaigning for the secession of mainly the south-east but also several other ethnic nationalities from Nigeria.

In the just-released ‘Country Policy and Information Note Nigeria: Biafran secessionist groups’ seen by TheCable, the UKVI, a division of the Home Office, directed its decision makers to consider if a person “who actively and openly supports IPOB is likely to be at risk of arrest and detention, and ill-treatment which is likely to amount to persecution”.

According to the guidelines, the decision makers “must also consider if the [Nigerian] government’s actions are acts of prosecution, not persecution. Those fleeing prosecution or punishment for a criminal offence are not normally refugees. Prosecution may, however, amount to persecution if it involves victimisation in its application by the authorities”.

An example of persecution, the UKVI said, is “if it is the vehicle or excuse for or if only certain groups are prosecuted for a particular offence and the consequences of that discrimination are sufficiently severe. Punishment which is cruel, inhuman or degrading (including punishment which is out of all proportion to the offence committed) may also amount to persecution”.

They are also to “consider each case on its facts to determine if the person is likely to be of interest to the [Nigerian] government and whether this is for the legitimate grounds of prosecution which is proportionate and non-discriminatory”.

BURDEN OF PROOF

The onus is on the applicants to demonstrate that they will be “at risk of persecution or serious harm” in Nigeria, according to the guidelines.

In particular, the decision makers are to consider each case on its facts, taking into account: profile, size, and organisation of the group/organisation to which the person belongs and its activities
whether a person in the UK would wish to continue their activism if returned to Nigeria (if not, why not)
whether the group/organisation has a presence in Nigeria as well as outside of the country and any evidence that it is being monitored by the government
person’s profile and political activities (including those online) and relevant documentary or other evidence
profile and activities of family members
past treatment.
The UK acknowledges that the Nigerian government has a responsibility to maintain law and order, “to prevent and protect the public against acts of violence”.

It said where supporters or members of MASSOB or IPOB “have incited or used violence to disrupt public order, the government may have legitimate grounds to arrest and prosecute those people”.

“However, where the government has arrested and detained persons who, for example, peacefully participate in demonstrations and has then charged them with treason or the person is subjected to periods of detention in degrading or inhuman conditions, such treatment is unlikely to be fair or proportionate, and is likely to amount to persecution,” the guidelines noted.

The UK defines ‘Biafra’ as an area “in the south-east of Nigeria that comprises the states of Abia, Imo, Ebonyi, Enugu and Anambra. The area is inhabited principally by Igbo (Ibo) people who are one of the country’s 3 largest ethnic groups”.

EVIDENCE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS APPLICATIONS

The UK, which is a signatory to several human rights and refugee conventions, believes Biafran secessionist agitations are covered by one or more of the following policies:

A person is reasonably likely to face a real risk of persecution or serious harm
The general humanitarian situation is so severe as to breach Article 15(b) of European Council Directive 2004/83/EC (the Qualification Directive)/Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights as transposed in paragraph 339C and 339CA(iii) of the Immigration Rules
The security situation presents a real risk to a civilian’s life or person such that it would breach Article 15(c) of the Qualification Directive as transposed in paragraph 339C and 339CA(iv) of the Immigration Rules
A person is able to obtain protection from the state (or quasi state bodies)
A person is reasonably able to relocate within a country or territory
A claim is likely to justify granting asylum, humanitarian protection or other form of leave, and
If a claim is refused, it is likely or unlikely to be certifiable as ‘clearly unfounded’ under section 94 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002.
However, decision makers are directly to still consider all claims on an individual basis, taking into account each case’s specific facts.

TheCable has contacted the Nigerian government for comment.

Nnamdi Kanu Was Right, I was Wrong, I See Now Why He Formed ESN —Ralph Uwazuruike |The Republican News

MASSOB leader Ralph Uwazuruike, IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu

By Gabriel


MASSOB Leader Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has said he will never again condemn Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and what he’s doing.

Uwazuruike said this in an interview with BBC based on the deadly attack that happen in Owerri where unknown gunmen attacked the Federal prisons and Police Headquarters in Imo State capital.

Uwazuruike also said it’s too early for anybody to blame IPOB.

“It was only God that saved Governor Hope Uzodima the attack that happened in Owerri is a sign of security failure and IG of Police is supposed to resign.

“You people want me to condemn Nnamdi Kanu, but i will not because I don’t support violence,Bad system of government brings bad people.

FG Sponsoring Terrorist Attacks In Igbo Land —MASSOB | The Republican News

Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has condemned the incessant criminal terrorism and security detoriation in Igbo land.

A statement by MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu said alleged that “acts of criminal terrorism by the so called unknown gunmen being perpetrated in our land against government facilities, security agents and some prominent individuals are being sponsored by enemies of Ndigbo.

MASSOB condemned the terrorist attack against Chukwuma Soludo at Isuofia; “we equally condemn the unwarranted killings of Ebonyi state indigenous citizens by Fulani terrorist heardsmen. MASSOB condemn in totality, the breaking of Owerri prison by the so called unknown gunmen.

“Through MASSOB intelligence Agency, we found out that all these attacks are being sponsored and executed by federal government of Nigeria through their protected militiamen called bandits and unknown gunmen.

“Their primary aim is to discredit non violence pro Biafra freedom fighters like MASSOB and IPOB. They want to create an erroneous impression that pro Biafra agitators have turned violent and militant.

“How can untrained and amatures with no military training overpower the entire security apparatus of Nigeria in South East? Why is it that there was no security resistance during the breaking up of owerri prisons and Imo State police headquarters in an operation that lasted more than one hour.

“Nigeria military cantonment, Obinze Owerri is seven minutes drive to the scenes of the crime, Imo State MOPOL base is three minutes drive to the scenes of the crime but no resistance from security agencies.

“The terrorist attacks in Owerri are part of the ongoing destructive measures by the President Muhamadu Buhari led administration to discredit and blackmail the pro Biafra organizations to create an erroneous impression that Biafrans are waging war against Nigeria. Igbo land is the most peaceful and unterrorised region.

“MASSOB advises Governor Hope Uzodinma to stop heaping blames on IPOB or ESN or any other pro Biafra organization. Pro Biafra agitators are not responsible for all the terrorist activities in Igbo land. President Muhamadu Buhari and his Fulani cabals are responsible. The fulani commissioners of police and military chiefs in Igbo land are partners in these terrorist activities in Biafra land.

“They will never stop until they achieve their desired aim. More destructive attacks will still come unless Southeast governors and other political, traditional and opinion leaders of Igbo land quickly convene a security meeting where critical stakeholders will put a a lasting strategy that will stop these devastative implosion coming to Biafra land.

“The federal government is plotting to militralised the entire Biafra land in disguise of searching for pro Biafra agitators. They are planning to intimidate and inflict fear on our people to frustrate Ndigbo from clamouring for 2023 presidency.”

Uwazuruike, 4 Others Head To United States For Biafra Inauguration As UNPO Member |The Republican News

MASSOB Leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike


The founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) otherwise called Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, is billed to lead four other leaders of the group to the United States of America for the formal inauguration of Biafra as the 46th member nation of the Unrepresented Nations and People’s Organisation (UNPO) of the United Nations.

According to a statement issued by the President of Biafra Internal Government (BIG), Chief Solomon Ordu Chukwu, through the Biafran Director of Information, Elder Chris Mocha, the inauguration is billed for July 31 to August 2, 2020, in Washington D.C, USA.

“A full delegation of Biafran government will attend the Unrepresented Nations and People organisation of the General Assembly in Washington DC. Chief Ralph Uwazuruike is expected to lead four other leaders of Biafra Internal Government during the inauguration or swearing-in ceremony into the UNPO membership”, Chukwu was quoted have said.

He recalled that the successes achieved by Uwazuruike led MASSOB began in November 1, 1999, when it submitted Biafra Bill of Rights to UN in which the group stated that the people of Biafra, consisting of the five Igbo speaking states of the southeast and with large population in Rivers, Delta, Cross River, Akwa-Ibom and Bayelsa states, is one of the Geo- political zones in Nigeria, and numbering about 40 million people, humbly seek to be admitted, registered or in the alternative, be treated as an UNPO member.

According to him: “In the said letter addressed to UN Secretary General, Mr. Koffi Anan (may his soul rest in peace) entitled: “Application for admission as UNPO member, MASSOB led by Chief Ralph Uwazuruike pointed out that world leaders and all other-peace loving people of the global community, had an imperative and conscientious duty not to fold their hands and permit what it called the grand conspiracy of enslavement, violence and destruction against Igbo Christians to go unchecked.”

Chukwu, however, added that it was this first application and several others in recent times that prompted UN to admit Biafra as 46th member of the UNPO on April 22, 2020. He disclosed further that Biafra flag shall be hoisted in front of the UNPO Secretariat, stating that UNPO general secretary, Ralph Bunche, had, in his letter addressed to BIM-MASSOB leader, Ralph Uwazuruike, dated April 22, 2020, expressed his gladness to welcome Biafra as a new member of the international body.

Chukwu equally expressed his happiness that the annual membership fee of 3,000 Euros has been transferred through bank to bank transfers of UNPO since May 27, 2020, preparatory to the General Assembly at Washington DC from July 31 to August 2, 2020.

MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike

The former minister of aviation Femi Fani Kayode has questioned on why the DSS invite Uwazuruike following the video he released through social media concerning Fulani invasion of southerners through the name of livestock grazing implementations.

Kayode in his reaction revealed that there are people that need quick invitation from DSS not Massob leader (Ralf Uwazuruike).

Abdul Azeez Suleiman and the coalition of Northern groups who openly threaten the whole nation and Southerners mostly Igbo leaders with 30 days ultimatum following their disagreement over RUGA or livestock grazing implementations have a call to answer from DSS, he said.
The former minister also questioned the silence of DSS since the group issue the ultimatum to the whole nation and also a particular tribe but too quick to invite uwazuruike after his video release.
